India's tourism sector set to grow

India's ministry of tourism believes that the country's tourist industry is set to see strong growth.

According to Rajen Habib Khwaja, the secretary of the ministry, India has experienced a strong surge in interest from overseas over the past few months and the outlook for the sector remains positive. He explained: "India today is emerging as a major economy of the world with growth rate of more than eight per cent per annum. The tourism industry in India is set to grow even at a higher pace."

Recent figures published by the United Nations World Tourism Organisation showed that the Asia and Pacific region saw a 14 per cent increase in international visitors during August 2010 despite the worldwide economic recession.
